New Art & Book Covers
I've been thinking a lot lately about making myself be even more productive...I need to do more work! There's a show I'm planning on submitting to with a deadline coming up soon, there's my independent study (for which I have a due date next week!) and then, last but not least, this blog. My original intentions for creating this blog was, after all, to stay productive after graduation.
Luckily, I have a new job which might mean a little more free time for creative work. I'm not sure how everything will come together, but fingers crossed. If not, I can at least drink a lot more coffee. It's been awhile since I've pulled an all-nighter.
I mentioned in a recent post that I bought some blank wood postcards from The Paper Place. I finally got around to making something from one of them. I plan on doing the other two soon, and hopefully more intricately, to be framed in a shadowbox.
Also, I bought myself a little present (even though I have less than no money...) I bought this collection of 100 vintage Penguin cover postcards. I love, love, love them. Aside from being fun to look at they will also fuel my recent and unrelenting interest in design. I'm also planning on framing some of them and including them in the bedroom makeover I want to start working on after the holidays.
